Vacation, Part II

Here is an example of what happens at night... I chirp to get on the bed and chirp to get off. I am tired but I don't want to sleep. I don't know what I want so I just make myself as obnoxious as possible so Leah stops reading and pays attention to me. (By the way, I am glad to see that I am not alone in my chirpage, as the lovely Ruby has confessed to a similar noise-making tactic.) My chirps are mixed with the occasional huff (in honor of Fig, who has been called Hufflepuff for her constant snorts of disgust). Leah didn't get a video of me chirping (yet), but she did manage to get a little huff.




After chirping, huffing, and running around the room for quite a while, she finally gave me a bone.


She's starting to catch on. WAIT! I INTERRUPT THIS BLOG TO GIVE YOU THIS VIDEO, TAKEN 2 SECONDS AGO, OF ME CHIRPING!


Anyway, on to more important things. Guess what tomorrow is?! SUPER TUESDAY!!!!!! WOOOOOOO! We're excited over here in Illinois, even though we know not all states (or countries, sorry Lorenza & Luckie & everyone else not caught in this mess!) can vote tomorrow. But for everyone who can, you know what to do.





GO VOTE!

Petra, I love to huff! It's not just a Boston thing.

You sound like one of those little creatures in Star Wars when you chirp. I chirp too...but it sounds way different!

I huff but don't chirp. That chirping is odd but cute.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Petra!
You look sooooo cute in those videos!
Yes, too bad I can't vote!
Kisses and hugs

I make both the chirp and the huff. The Huff is VERY effective when demanding treats!

Luckie Girl said...

hehe..I do the exact same thing once I get my harness on. Even though I can't vote, I'm anxious about the results!! :)

Oh little Petra,
That chirp is just about the cutest thing ever!
Mom says she has never heard that little noise before, but is certainly intrigued by it!
And Ruby chirps too???

PeeS: At first I thought your "huff" was a sneeze!

Terrier sister, you are cute, cute, cute when you chirp. I huff sometimes. We are not allowed to vote yet. Grammie says that us in Oregon seem to do things different from the rest of the country.

I chirp too! But it's more drawn out and pawthetic sounding. Mom says it's a high-pitched groan kinda. It's only a matter of time until we figure out how to speak hooman!
